There are clearly problems with concentrating poverty in poor, isolated cities, but 2 bedroom, >1000 sq ft houses in Hemet are currently listed for about $150K on Zillow compared with $265K per (presumably) 1 bedroom or studio in the proposed midrise building. I wonder if there might be a hybrid solution that cuts across different municipalities to provide a range of transitional and permanent housing at lower cost. This of course, would have to be balanced with transit accessibility, and costs of maintenance / support services.
